Even Felons Can Make Something of Themselves
An 8 time felon from Detroit just got elected as a state representative. Brian Banks will be representing the east side of Detroit. He was busted eight times for writing bad checks and for credit card fraud between 1998 and 2004. In Michigan, a felon can be elected if their crimes are not “related to the person’s official capacity while holding any elective office.” Good for you, Brian Banks! Next stop, the White House! How could he of lost with his slogan of “You Can Bank on Banks”?

Does anyone think that after this election we're gonna start seeing some Republicans start running their campaigns in black face.
I'd of thought that after getting caught the 2nd or 3rd crime you would have tried a new scheme. He final got to his backup plan though, Run for Office.
It just proves if your black in a city of Obama phone owners you WILL get elected no matter what you did (or currently do)
We need to cut our losses and give that city to Canada and let them deal with it.
Who's his advisor ? Marion Barry?. Holy shit !! Yet more proof that many people shouldn't be allowed to vote, or run.
To be fair no one in Detroit that is old enough to run for office isn't a felon. Their voter information mailers include mugshots and a rap sheet.
Well, I'm with you folks. I'm a forgive-and-forgettin' Christian, and I say, if their rambunctiousness, and misdemeanoring, is behind them...
He's Black and it was Detroit......is there any more racist group than blacks when it comes to voting? DC Mayor marion Barry? Obama carrying 95% of the black vote? Really we should just not allow them to vote...it's clear they aren't voting on issues...
This Country is going down a great path when Jamal in the fucking looney bin gets reelected to congress...
@OllieInChicago Nah, it's not purple.
@DeathProof He didn't beat the system he IS the system.
@TBVickroy Even with 9 strikes, they couldn't touch Matt Cain or the rest of the Giants pitching staff.
@Gunner I'll press your flesh, you dimwitted sumbitch! You don't tell your pappy how to court the electorate. We ain't one-at-a-timin' here. We're MASS communicating!
